Winthrop moose
« on: June 21, 2020, 03:59:35 PM »
Was out camping for the weekend and when out for a drive my wife spotted a moose! Just 80 yards or so off the road. Really neat to see.

My buds saw one once up near Sullivan’s pond in the middle of gun season
 said it was a big bull

Very cool you got pics
Nice to see
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Seen lots of Moose over the years I lived in the Methow.    Had to repair a huge section of new highway fence one day when they were finishing up the highway project into Winthrop.  Having coffee in the kitchen of the boss's house and it walked right past the window in front of us.  Drove down his driveway and seen the big hole in the new fence, walked right through it, pulled out wooden post and bent four T-post over.  :bash: :bash:   The day before it walked across the highway right in front of one of the flaggers, had to laugh, he looked like he wanted to run BUT to where!
The only good tree, is a stump!

Did he stop the moose with his sign or allow it to proceed slow?

Maybe they are making a come back, or maybe they were already there in decent numbers? I have seen one or two moose per year in the upper Methow Valley for the past 3-4 years.

Over the years I found three areas in the Methow that always carry moose, don't know why they preferred the areas, but On any given weekend we could go into any of the three and see moose.
